British birds by Thorburn, Archibald -1860-1935-

Everyone plugs Standard Ebooks now for reads, which are great, but I also want to draw attention to this hidden gem: the E-Book Uploads section of the MobileRead forums, with thousands of books in a variety of formats.

Many are done by dedicated volunteers, or independent ebook publishers who know the software and convert free books on the side. I've read a couple from here and the quality has been wonderful - with illustrations, proofreading, etc - much better than the free auto-conversions from most places.


My review of by Alice McIlroy is live on !

A nuanced, complex, sophisticated read which psychological suspense fans will gobble up with glee.

Flora Londinensis, or Plates and descriptions of such plants as grow wild in the environs of London by Curtis, William, 1746-1799-

I've been Bob Mortimer's book the Satsuma Complex and I don't think I can be bothered to finish it.

It's easy to read and enjoyable enough but it's pretty much what you'd expect from a British comedian. It's got the usual non-glamorous, bland everyday Englishness about it -- like scotch eggs and tea, like that Harry Hill movie.

It's O.K. but it's not all that funny, and the non-glamorous nature means the story is like an ITV drama more than anything truly exciting


Basic Income for Canadians
This is a long form look at many studies on basic income. Overall, people use the money to improve their lives and continue to work. They don't get lazy, but employers may complain because it gets harder to find people willing to work for low wages as they now have more financial freedom and don't need to keep a crappy job with a bad boss.

Orlando, by Virginia Woolf - Free ebook download "A lighthearted romp of a book, Orlando remains resolutely literary and asks lingering questions about the construction of gender, the intersection between the spirit of the age and artistic creation, and what loving another person really means "

Here is my Review of Outlander w/ Spoilers:

Last week I found this Chinese Paper Cut book at Half Price Books. Its absolutely beautiful and unexpected. I wasnt intending to get it but it was cheap as chips (less than $10) and it seemed wrong to leave it. Each page is a beautiful paper cut with film over it to protect it. Chinese astrological signs on one side and birds on the other. No clue what the background to this is but enjoy the photos!

Los nios estn en la guardera esperando a que sus padres vengan a buscarlos, pero el pronto vendrn de la tata puede ser tarde cuando las cosas empiezan a fallar y los pequeos se ven obligados a aprender y descubrir la realidad.

Emotiva, bizarra y cruda. Pues si el autor hizo una maratn de escritura yo la hice de lectura, me atrapo tanto el libro que me encerr a leerlo, compartir el viaje de los personajes, sus sorpresas ante lo que van descubriendo y mantenerme en la zona iluminada con ellos ha sido un proceso intenso.

Finished book 1 of 2024 - There is No Antimimetics Division by qntm. A sci-fi/horror SCP novel. Not my usual sort of reading, but it explored a very interesting concept and drew me in.

2023 in Books


2023 has passed and Ive read more during that year than usual. Sadly, though, reading-wise 2023 was a very mixed bag - 3.1 was my average rating, Goodreads helpfully informs me and it makes sense.

There were ...

Some sapphic princesses who fight dragons really did the trick last night, and I just finished the rest of it now. The world building is amazing and all the different gods are my favorites of all books that have deities! Though the first book only gives you a hint of that. Book two goes deeper into it (one of the MCs is a goddess) and it is one of my absolute favorite books! Havent read books 3-5 yet, I have some great daydreams that takes place after the 2nd and I dont want to ruin them :meowmeltcry: also, book 3s description sounds like there might be some angst there, which also holds me back.. (Reviews are very good though, for all books)

All societies/cultures have men, women and neutroi (enbies essentially), you love who you love, no strangeness about it. For nobility there is the question of heirs though. There are priests who have a ritual to change peoples bodies (man->woman or wise versa, no details about how that works for neutroi which I assume is because the author didnt want to put her foot in her mouth, so I like to think you can sort of pick and choose your bodys attributes), it holds for as long as your spirit is willing to stay in that shape. Varies from no time at all to enough time for, say, two women to knock one of them up to permanent (what we would call trans). (Two men needs to settle for a surrogate, but I think they can combine both dads genes. Adoption is also quite common)

Monogamy is the default though, unfortunately. No mentions of poly even existing as a concept.

(The series is Tales of Inthya by Effie Calvin if someones interested)
